55 Liberty Street, Liberty, NY 12754



I had to include this circa 1923 Colonial Revival on a quiet street in Liberty because the exterior is so gorgeous! Unfortunately, the interior has been stripped of most of its original charm. Laminate covers the hardwood floors, the original trim is scarce and it’s pretty much blanded out. The original cast iron radiators are still in place, and salvage yards with doors, trim and stained glass are in the area to help restore the interior of this 4-bedroom, 1.5-bath home to its old grandeur.
